    May 15, 2021 - This is my last bottle and I am happy to finish this vintage. It is still a good wine for drinking and it is fairly classic in its style. It is just off balance and seems disjointed. I would not keep these any more than 1-2 years while it is at this level.

    July 21, 2020 - Unbalanced and disjointed.

    August 8, 2019 - Consistent with previous note. Nice for drinking but not for keeping.

    June 9, 2019 - Fairly decent performance. Has started to "turn" towards a more fresh wine and shedding some of its concentrated fruit.
    The wine is lush with sweet dark cherries and with a solid acidity to keep it lively. The tannins are starting to get more polished but it is still a fairly young Amarone.
    With air and especially increased temperature the wine does seem to lack cohesion and balance.

    January 13, 2019 - I’ve obviously been luckier than other cellartrackers who have tried this recently... this bottle was drinking perfectly. Lots of power but still well balanced.

    Felt like there was no rush to drink this either. Given what other recent tasting notes have said I suspect there must be notable bottle variation here.

    (AMARONE Allegrini) Allegrini Magnums Dear Friends, Lots of Italian wine this week but they are all worth consideration... It seems that 3.0lts were a bit much for many of you but you asked if we could secure a set of magnums of Allegrini instead - here you go. This lot is also directly for the winery cellar with perfect provenance. Both are quite rare in magnum and especially the La Poja. Both have ageing potential in this format up to 20 years (or more).

    (ALLEGRINI Amarone) Allegrini 3.0 Dear Friends, Something of measurable interest was just confirmed and it’s the first time I’ve seen this format in 2003 for both wines. The Amarone and La Poja have a major following in the US and I don’t believe the 2003s have been exported in 3.0ltr as the size is just too cumbersome - we’ve figured out a perfect way to transport them under temperature controlled conditions without worry and this offer is the result. For a large party of consequence this is beyond what I would refer to as unique. Hand bottled and sealed from what is rumored to be a reserve level barrel selection of each, these would make for a bold statement in any cellar and they have potential to increase in value as they are not available outside of Italy. A “wow” set of wines: 2003 Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicella 3.0lt Multi-award winner in Italy - one of the most decorated versions of this wine ever produced. 2003 Allegrini “La Poja” 3.0lt This is Allegrini’s single vineyard Corvina and it has wowed in the past - this format is so rare I believe they only made a few dozen - not yet reviewed by all the powers that be but sure to be memorable. Both are VERY HARD TO FIND and are EXTREMELY LIMITED (obviously) Thank you, Jon Rimmerman Garagiste Seattle, WA Italy7890 Italy7880
